Obama on his way to the Pink House
Perhaps the White House should be renamed the Pink House. New York politician Christine Quinn is on a one-woman mission to get all America’s gays to vote for Barack Obama. Lesbian Quinn – New York’s City Council speaker – reckons she could tip the election in Obama’s favour if she can simply get all her fellow gays to back the Democrat candidate for the White House.Explaining her reason for backing Obama, Quinn say: “I am confident he will be the most pro-gay president we’ve had.”
Quinn, 41, New York’s first openly lesbian speaker, will hit the road this Autumn to promote Obama’s campaign among gays and lesbians in swing states like Pennsylvania. She plans to take part in special bus trips in which she and other gays preach to the masses.
